Sea Horse.... Emblem of safe travel

This pendant was cast from an antique wax seal stamp from the 1800's. These were used to seal letters and correspondence and come is a huge variety of designs, mottos, sentiments, heraldry and proverbs...

Poseidon is the Greek god of the sea, storms, horses and earthquakes.
Here we see the profile of a horse with Poseidon's trident in its mouth.
Thus showing us a sea horse.
Poseidon was said to be the protector of seafarers and seahorses symbolise safe travels especially by sea.

Perfect as a talisman for yourself or a loved one setting out on a journey, physically or metaphorically.....

This seal measures 25mm x 15mm including the bail loop. (This measurement is approximate as each amulet is made to order one at a time.)

It is oxidised and hand polished to give it an antique patina.

This amulet is available on its own or with a Belcher/rolo chain in the length of your choice.

Wax Seal Jewelry......
Each piece offered for sale is an imprint or cast of an antique wax seal from my personal collection. I use 100% sterling silver as this has the strength and durability needed for a piece of jewelry that is to be worn for years. All the jumps rings, clasps etc, are also sterling silver and each part is soldered, also for strength and durability. My intention is to make a piece that could become an heirloom too and for it to last generations.
Each piece is individually handmade and therefore no two pieces will be exactly the same, they will however be extremely similar. The mark of the maker has been purposely left on the casts. The signs of age, cracks and tool marks all add to the charm of the piece and are an intentional feature.
